This a 4 pt. Video... the link is only part one... only for the truly afflicted BFS enthusiasts
Reels used are the purple ito ai listed above, Zonda rosso, revo ltx-bf8, and alphas air
Over 40min. Of footage if you watch all 4... skip to pt.4 if you just wanna know my results and which I prefer

Watching vids now... glad to see another BF8 owner. The spool on the LTX weighs 7.57 with bearing.

Yeah it and the whole reel are very light... I haven't played with the magnets yet... It came with three installed and that's how I've used it

Add more magnets and the 2 gram lures should go farther.

SW use, vertical & horizontal presentations, ability for hard/rapid casts.
Then it just has to be best it can be.
We've come up with this, a working rod prototype and a reel dubbed ISA.
Here is what it looks like:

Thank you Ian and Aaron for making this happen!


Is that a T3 Air spool? It looks like it. Recently I had wondered if the diameter of the spool was right why someone hadn't tried this. Was it a direct fit or did it require modifications? Thanks. Looks great!

I have a red CCC and line guide screw coming from The Tackle Trap too. That should finish it off pretty good.

I got an SS Air a couple of weeks ago to see what Daiwa BFS is about while waiting for the new Shimanos to come out. Very smooth reel and casts great. Very much on par with the other 2. Dont like the knobs though.
